NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 2, 2018 | Pasadena, CA

Thank you, to the more than 3,000 attendees, presenters, exhibitors, volunteers, and sponsors who joined us in Pasadena at the 2018 California Science Education Conference. We would love to get your feedback! You can provide feedback on the conference overall, as well as individual events. To access individual event surveys, navigate to that event in the app or online and you will find the link to the survey.

Handouts/Slide Decks: Presenters are sending in their handouts and slide decks for sharing with conference attendees. To find the handouts look in both the descriptions of the individual sessions (for links) or further down in the documents section for PDFs. CSTA has added a new button/link (Sessions with Handouts) to make it easier to identify which workshops and other events we have received documents for.
